R 550.00 ZAR
'Jigsaw ammonites are always stunning specimens for display as they show the complex suture structure of the critters and therefore have a wonderful patterns on the polished surfaces. A percentage of stock has polished ends which seek to highly the complexity of the sutures but this tends to be an artist impression and not a natural feature. The polishing of suture like structures is not common and limited to certain providers. Otherwise this are stunning ancient ammonite specimens which will show a diversity of calcite or sediment infilled material exposed on the beautifully polished surface.

Septerye is a combination of Calcite, Chalcedony and Aragonite. Septerye is formed when cracks appears in solidified Silica found in seafloor sediment mineral accretions and fossil stones. When the nodule (mud based rock) cracks, due to shrinkage, colonies of micro sea organisms settle into the cracks. When these organisms and minerals crystallize, they create a layer of calcite which acts like a cementing type of bond between the cracks of the sedimentary mud rock, Chalcedony and Aragonite. This rock type has lovely colours and fantastic patterns. Classically polished into an egg format and appropriately named Dragons eggs which tend to have crystalline exposures. Balls, hearts and other polished lines tend to have frequent crystalline areas.
